All Device Media Queries

With so many mobile device screen sizes available these days, designing and developing for 1024/768/480/320 pixel widths doesn’t cut it anymore (and hasn’t for a while).  To help with this, I propose a catch all. I’ve found this method to be especially helpful when I’m working with a less fluid design that requires more media … Read more
